While the results are applicable to all companies, they focus on local businesses. An incredible 92% of respondents state they would only use a company if it displayed, at least, a four-star rating on review sites. The stats are broken down further, showing reliability (27%), expertise (21%), and professionalism (18%) to be the most vital characteristics for a local company to be associated with. After analyzing this data and additional studies, ICMediaDirect confirms that building up a solid online reputation is just as important for a company as prioritizing its offline standing in the local community.
ICMediaDirect notes that this year’s edition of Affiliate Summit will feature keynotes from the most influential and thought-provoking public figures in the realm of digital platforms and marketing. Speaker Scott Stratten, a social media and relationship marketing influencer, President of Un-Marketing and the author of four best-selling business books, is one of “America’s 10 Marketing Gurus”, notes Business Review USA. The final and concluding day of Affiliate Summit East 2016 will welcome an SEO keynote panel, featuring Bruce Clay (President of Bruce Clay, Inc.), Duane Forrester (VP at Bruce Clay, Inc.), along with Stephan Spencer (Co-Author of The Art of SEO).

ICMediaDirect is a native within today’s electronic ecosystem and acts as a creative content marketer in addition to a technical conduit. As participants in this year’s inaugural Content Rising Summit, hosted by Skyword in Boston, ICMediaDirect underscored its commitment to the art and science of brand storytelling by revealing a new method for conveying powerful concepts through creative marketing. As a company spokesperson says, “Our clients have been able to reach a broader base with an uplifting message, simply through the quality of the content they project.” This content-focused, user-driven strategy is one with the reader in mind, a solution that invites the viewer into a community rather than asking them to simply click over. With the American Marketing Association declaring “focus on user experience” as one of the six SEO rules for 2016, it stands to reason that ICMediaDirect is, once again, ahead of the curve.
